Measures approximately 24 - 1/2" from cascabel to muzzle. Muzzle is slightly swamped, with a reinforcing ring just behind swamp with a decorative band of scroll behind the band, and playful floral geometrics in front. Well-detailed fishform lifting handles, with additional reinforcing rings in front of and behind the handles decorated en suite with ring at muzzle, just of slightly larger scale. Raised vacant shield over the breech, decorated in same elaborate floral style. Reinforcing rings at breech, with raised touchhole, decorated en suite with rest of cannon, while cascabel is knobbed. Mounted in a naval style carriage with scalloped edge decorations and 4 rings for securing the carriage; rear right ring with a short, approximately 12", piece of rope with a brass eyelet that appears to have been with the piece for some time. Wheels retained by lynch pins. Cannon held in place by brass trunnion brackets utilizing retaining pins. Underneath the main body of cannon is a pair of wedges with handles, one large and one small. CONDITION: Bronze has a deep uncleaned rich golden color, with some verdigris forming throughout, particularly in protected areas. Touchhole is currently filled with a deteriorating wooden plug of some kind, but air flows through to muzzle. Carriage is excellent, with attractive handling marks throughout, but solid and highly attractive. Bore has debris but appears serviceable. Rope segment is good with fraying on one end. Walnut tampion that fits correctly is of later manufacture. An attractive example. EMW
